It has been rumored for months, as to whether or not Verizon Wireless will be receiving the Galaxy Nexus. But, just yesterday -Verizon announced that the Galaxy Nexus will be coming to retailers “later this year”. In the interest of time, many think that the phone could possibly be released in less than 3 weeks. According to the screenshot by Android Central, the Galaxy Nexus smartphone will be launched on November 10, but is this really true? The launch date could be fact, however Android Central never relased the source of the image, making the information a little suspicious. Well, some of…

T-Mobile’s latest addition to its line-up of high-end Android smartphones is the HTC Amaze 4G. Pre-orders for the awaited device started on Monday this week and units are expected to be shipped out starting today. The price of the HTC Amaze 4G is US$260 (with a new 2-year contract on T-Mobile and after US$50 mail-in rebate). After supplying phones in the past, HTC has become more aggressive in selling devices under its own brand. HTC has recently been very aggressive in creating devices with heavy camera hardware such as the HTC Radar and Titan. Following the HTC myTouch 4G Slide…

The first half of next year should get very interesting  for mobile devices. We’re expecting the Qualcomm S4, NVIDIA Kal-El, Texas Instruments OMAP 4470, and Samsung’s new Exynos 4212 chips to arrive then. But, even if these devices will all arrive in the first half of 2012, we don’t know the exact dates–and that might make a difference. For example, if one of them is 30% better than the other, but arrives in June, while the other arrives in January, then it might not mean much, because the January chip will probably have an upgraded version by June, too, and…

Could this be the end of HTC’s exclusive use of Qualcomm chips? In a recent interview of HTC’s VP of Marketing with GSMArena, he said there’s actually “no exclusive deal” between HTC and Qualcomm, and when asked what other chips they could use, he said “Nvidia or TI-powered smartphones and tablets are possible in the future.” Qualcomm have done very well for themselves with the rise of touchscreen smartphones. They managed to grab TI’s longstanding leadership position, which happened with the rise of Android and the fall of Nokia and RIM (who mainly used TI chips). But perhaps the biggest reason Qualcomm…

Leaked photos of the LG Esteem recently showed up in the LG Partner Portal and they suggest that MetroPCS will be making further moves into the world of Android and LTE 4G connectivity with this particular device. Some in the blogosphere have reported that you can get your hands on this phone for a mere $350 after a $100 mail-in rebate. And, while there there is no confirmed release date, rumors had suggested that September 23rd would be the day. However, due to the fact that it is September 28th, that guess is out of the picture. However, it leads…

A few days ago, Archos announced that their upcoming tablets that were supposed to have a dual core 1.5 Ghz OMAP 4460 processor in them, won’t have that chip anymore, because it was delayed by TI until early 2012. Archos will now settle for an overclocked OMAP 4430 with 1.2 Ghz per core. So the question is, does this affect only Archos, or does it affect everyone who was planning on using the OMAP 4460 this year? Because that would mean the Nexus Prime won’t have it, either, and it was originally rumored it will, because people found code that…

Samsung is on overdrive! This device marks yet another entrant to the Superphone Arena, packing specs to die for. The Samsung SHV-E120L first exposed itself in NenaMark’s benchmark result not too long ago, and while it made our jaws drop (again), it didn’t reveal much in the way of specs beyond its 1.5GHz Snapdragon processor, 1280Ă—720 display and the fact that it was a device running Android 2.3.5. Interested? Read on. And so we have a 4G capable device, with all the usual stuff, but with a larger battery than most devices out there, which is nice. Plus, as you will…

20-LG-LU6200

As you probably know by now, things never stay still in the Android Universe. Just a few short days ago, we got wind of LG’s latest killer device – and it’s looking to be an absolute beast of a superphone. Thankfully, today, hands on images of the device itself have surfaced, as have further details about its specs. For the doubters out there – check the images below. Dubbed the LG LU6200, it was recently spotted in Korea courtesy of a site named Money Today, and we have them posted for you below. Featuring a massive 4.5 inch 720p AH-IPS display, it has…

Android has come a long way since the days of companies launching “iPhone killers”. It seems that the Android ecosystem has a king now and that’s Galaxy S II. And that’s why LG is supposedly not wasting any time and is trying to dethrone it. LG has long been a close competitor to Samsung, so this comes off as no surprise. If you remember LG last year, they wanted to be the first manufacturer with a dual core Tegra 2 smartphone on the market. Unfortunately, they had to cut some corners to do that. They didn’t have time to put…
